EPI633- Infectious Disease Epidemiology
This graduate-level course provides an in-depth theoretical and applied foundation on the concepts, principles and domain knowledge of infectious disease epidemiology.
It focuses on three main areas:
- Understanding the concepts, terminology, and analytical tools unique to infectious disease epidemiology.
- Understanding each aspect of the host-pathogen-environment triad for a range of locally, nationally, and globally important infectious diseases.
- Building a toolkit so students have the ability to critically assess peer-reviewed studies in infectious disease and start to conceptualize and plan studies of their own.
PH390V- Pathogens, People and Politics
This undergraduate elective course explores the interactions and impacts of human behavior, politics, and policy on the emergence, transmission and persistence of infectious diseases in a global context. The course consist of case studies which combine lectures, structured class discussions, and multimedia content.
These case studies focus on three central themes:
- Exposure to the concepts and terminology unique to infectious disease epidemiology.
- Exploring the ways human behavior modifies risk for infectious disease in direct and indirect ways.
- Examining the complex interactions between society, politics and public policy at local and global scales that impact transmission and endemicity of infectious disease.
